Desert Silence

“Silence makes us whole if we let it.  Silence helps draw together the scattered and dissipated energies of a fragmented existence.”
― Thomas MertonThoughts in Solitude

desert flower 3

A bud in the desert
sprouts into life,
through winds of adversity and hostile nights.

In desert silence I deciphered the stars,
symbols of existence
transmuted scars.

Intense scorching collapsed my sight,
in transcendent light.

Change is inevitable on shifting sands,
movement of perception,
my vision expands.

I am an unknown introvert who desires to touch the world with a little bit of magic...
